Christmas has come and gone...and now here we go right into 2007! Woo Hoo!

I'm showing my latest design, "I'm S'mitten with you". I did this design for Wichelt Imports and it appeared on the back cover of Just Cross Stitch Magazine's latest release! Best part for you the stitcher is that it is a "FreeBee" pattern. It was stitched with Northern Lights (silk) from Needlepoint, Inc and Rainbow Gallery's wisper. There are two charms from Mill Hill along with Mill Hill's wonderful frame! It is a quick stitch and has the wonderful wintery love!

Well, I am getting ready for San Diego. Only a few short days a way and lots to do! The TRIOs first release is out - "L". Also "Blue Bonnet"...

Have a wonderful New Years! Hope to see some of you in San Diego!

Many Blessings,

Paula :)

Giving - the best part

Zan Frederickson of Hope International Adoption shared this picture with me of the fund raising event the charity had just recently in Dallas. This gift basket features my sunflower design, "Bloomin' Smiles" and my sunflower notecards inside. You can find out more about this group at .

My hope is that my small contribution made a big impact in the life of child somewhere...

Have a blessed day!

Painting, Sewing, a regular Santa's workshop

We had quite a little cold snap just last week. It was just what I needed to put me into the Holiday spirit!

New Trios for 2007! This is BIZZI's first monthly series! Each month there will be a design featuring a new letter of the alphabet. January is featuring "L" for Laugh, Love, Live. The design is stitched with three colors of Needlepoint Ink Silk. Each month there will be a coordinating fun finishing idea from Trail Creek Farm. So - these will start to ship soon...

The "Bistro" painting was my first experiment painting watercolor on the new watercolour canvas. I like this part of the painting (other half not shown). But close up shows all the little textures of the canvas and I'm not sure I like it.

Well, working on Christmas Cards and have several done, but a few to finish up... then punching models for my "Cat on a Stick" class for San Diego. I will also be teaching the same class at Nashville in February!

Back to it!
